I think of a newborn baby and think of a simple, innate beauty. On a blank canvas of simple, light backgrounds and little to no adornments, the beauty is in the details. In the back wrinkles. In the sheer, almost invisible eyelashes. In tiny toes and even teenier toenails. In wisps of hair and curled up baby fingers.

With bigger children it's the big bright eyes, expressive faces and giddy laughter that I love to capture; but for these newborn sessions, with fresh new little people, it's these subtle nuances that will so quickly fade. The start of a brand new story that has just begun to be written.

For Norah, her story begins as the first baby girl in the family... a little sister to love after three boys. Mommy is a teacher, Daddy is a firefighter and, between them, and three older brothers, I think Norah's story will be full of love and affection. Welcome to the world, sweet Norah.

I love the precise simplicity in her images. The purity of white. The simplicity and perfection of a new little being. This baby girl is truly precious and unique and I loved creating these images that help to tell the story of how baby Norah's life began.

In addition to these in-studio images, I had the pleasure of photographing Miss Norah and her parents at our Fresh 48 Hospital session.
